In Her Own Words

About her

Greetings gentlemen,
I’ve found writing a profile really difficult – how to sum up 57 years eh? Perhaps most succinctly as a bag of contradictions:
I love silence, and go on silent retreats - but also enjoy the odd knees up
I absolutely love living in London and enjoy the culture that this wonderful city offers, but when I’m in the countryside it feels like home too, when I get home I check out right move…
I like to amuse people and also to be amused (I’ve been a fan of stand-up comedy for many years)
I enjoy travel, but equally I’m happy to stay at home; this summer I’m heading out to road trip around Tennessee -any top tips?
I am blessed with a career that challenges and rewards me greatly, getting me out of bed with a spring in my step – but I am looking forward to retirement, where I can more invest time on the people, places and hobbies that nourish me. Reading, gardening, cycling and once more looking after a hive of bees.

Qualities I actively develop and seek in others are Kindness, intelligence, loyalty, and the ability to laugh at life and oneself. I am a good person living a good life, and seek a good soul to share this with.

This really doesn’t do me justice – if you’re a good soul, get in touch!

All photos are taken this year - and where there are many 'ask me later' responses, it's because there was no choice that really worked.

About her ideal match

Ideally I'm looking for a man who lives life intelligently, with kindness and compassion, but knows his own mind and is no pushover. Someone who already has built a full life and is looking for an interdependent relationship, where we are equals, so I'm wanted but not needed. Someone who enjoys being active, and living life well. A man who has good conversation, can make me laugh and laugh at himself is a keeper!
I enjoy listening to a broad range of music, reading, gardening, international cinema, theatre, cycling, architecture and dining with friends.
